So of course most of the focus right now is on the 50th Anniversary Special with Matt Smith and David Tennant and then following that the Christmas Special which gives us Matt’s Smith’s last appearance and the arrival of Peter Capaldi.
But we are getting the first little tidbits of Doctor Who Season 8 news as well. For example it seems to be confirmed that shooting begins on Season 8 in January 2014.
And assuming something like a 12 episode season (the usual length) you’re looking at about an 8 month cycle to shoot them all. Which would put us in line for a Fall airing of season 8 again.
Unless of course they split it like they have the last couple of seasons?
Beyond that we don’t know much .Jenna Louise Coleman will return and Steven Moffat is staying with the show. And we do have one writer, Jack Lothian who is claiming to be working on a Season 8 episode.
Lothian hasn’t written for Who before but has or is working on shows like The Musketeers,Doc Martin, Ashes to Ashes and Outcasts.
No doubt more script info will surface soon.
